>> let me introduce myself. maybe somebody will find a fair for him. this is fine. okay. we're very pleased that all of you have come. we are especially pleased by our two speakers today. it's going to be on a topic of significance. let me tell you why this is significant, not just for our school, but also for the united states, and the middle east in general. let me also say that this is by the program on u.s. foreign policy. and dr. jim murray is here, who is the program chair. and we're very pleased to sponsor it. president obama at the very beginning of his administration chose to keep the middle east, the highest priority. and set out the goal of comprehensive peace as the best way to move. this region, that has been in
4:55 am
turmoil for decades, to a place of stability and hopefully liberalization in general. the israeli-palestinian struggle is at comprehensive peace. but also it is the israeli relationship to the u.s. hearing relationship, israeli relationship with lebanon, israeli relationship with all of the arab countries that have formally announced in arab initiative by which they agree to recognize israel if israel were to permit the creation of an independent palestinian state. so this is a key moment for the middle east. it is a very important moment for the united states. president obama appointed senator george mitchell to be his special envoy.

they had their first set of objectives by israel and palestine as the two-state solution as the goal, and freeze as critical to the negotiations. as many of you may know, israel had agreed to agree the settlements as long as as the oslo agreements in 1993, but settlements kept increasing. as a result, the palestinians felt that new negotiations could not begin unless there was an agreement that they should not -- the settlement should not be extent the first. but it's on that issue that israeli-palestinian negotiation has been. and today we are going to look at a series of possible alternative for the process of peace in the middle east. and that is the negotiations
4:57 am
with and the serious negotiation with the united states to normalize between the two countries. in the 1960 war at the end of that, israel had taken control of the heights of syria and egypt, and all of jerusalem, and it promised a plan for peace. if the enemies were willing to recognize israel, and to make peace, it was prepared to give land back. and that's what happened as a result of mr. carter mediation on regard to israel, and that peace process has remained. the -- it has not happened with regard to the syria yet. but syria has put forth a
4:58 am
proposal. and one the questions on the table for all of us to discuss today is what is the prospect of that original proposal of peace. is syria prepared to accept land for peace? is israel prepared to accept land for peace? the originally formula. the second critical question is the relationship between syria and the united states. that relationship had broken down in the -- about five or six years ago. there's the comprehensive plans that have been imposed on syria. but the sanctions has been opposed. syria has removed its troops from lebanon. which was one the major concerns. and as it has moved to try to see if the relationship with
4:59 am
iraq as well as with the united states. senator mitchell has gone to syria several times, and he has pledged to try to move forward in the process. he is promised to send back the u.s. ambassador to damascus. that is the second question before us today. we are very, very fortunate to have two very eloquent spokesman that can address those two questions about the processes for peace between israel and syria. our principal speaker is
